Two new maternity outfits on the table

Literally. The dining room table. I’ll post pics tomorrow when I cut them out. I bought a snakeskin-esque modern rayon print in cream and teal and black, a purple and dark gold print on cream that’s abstract with borders. So far I’m unsure on the fit of the wrap dress, the pattern seems huge (and I’ve heard Burda maternity runs large). So I really need to tissue-fit that one tomorrow to see how it will work.

Update:tissue fit seemed fine so I cut it out today. Here’s the Burda pic of the dress and description file for it. I think it will go together relatively easily in the rayon jersey print I selected for it. And from the tech drawing, it can probably also be worn postpartum; the gathers (on the top / right side only) would flatten out and it’s got an empire tie that would be flattering postpartum, too.

I'm Ann. I've been sewing since I was 9. My first project was a denim wrap skirt. Thrifting is a way of life for me - both eco-chic and financially savvy.
